Part 7 in the Lactamase series. Another in a fine series of enigmatic environmental growls from sonic heroes NMF. Pinging a bit like the audio equivalent of random & drifting thoughts whilst on the subway to work, NMF have an uncanny way of stringing together the disparate sounds of urbanopolis into a surreal narrative. Distant fragments of music blow in & away like a wind which also carries with it incomprehensible voices. A choir of night birds chime at each other over a faraway metallic ringing l&scape. An accuracy of recording & a certain quietude are what make this such a brilliant piece which is not merely for the listening but also effective for mental transportation. I guess the crux of the matter is that 'Muzook' is like a recorded memory. Several memories, actually, & ever changing ones at that. This also gains points for capturing my dog's attention. One thing the world needs right now is more music for dogs!
